VAIN  ])ride  of  ancestry  is  silly,  and  the  snobbishness  that  estimates  a  man's  worth  only  accord- 
ing to  the  social  status  of  his  grandfather  is  contemptible  ;  neverthuless  every  man  should 
endeavor  to  know  all  he  can  of  his  family  history  ;  the  indifference  that  some  profess  as  to 
such  things  is  either  insincere,  or  it  is  a  mark  of  littleness  of  mind  or  of  selfishness.  It  is,  or  should 
be,  a  matter  of  interest  to  every  one  to  know  something  of  those  who  have  borne  his  name  before 
him — no  matt  r  whether  they  have  been  earls  or  blacksmiths  ;  and  more  especially  so  if  they 
(whether  earls  or  blacksmiths)  have  served  their  country  well  and  faithfully,  either  in  peace  or  in 
war,  in  great  things  or  in  small. 

No  people  can  look  back  to  a  more  honourable  commencement  from  which  to  date  their  family 
histories  than  those  whose  ancestors  were  United  Empire  Loyalists,  or  the  later  immigrants  who 
came  to  Upper  Canada  as  pioneers  to  take  their  part  in  constructing  a  prosperous  country  out  of  a 
wilderness — a  task  which  called  for  courage,  energy  and  patience,  as  the  necessary  conditions  of 
success  ;  a  people  who  showed  that  they  possessed  these  virtues  when  in  1812  they  resolutely  rose  to 
defend  their  infant  country  against  an  aggressive  power  who  threatened— and  endeavored — to  over- 
whelm them  with  an  army  exceeding  in  number  the  whole  population  of  the  country  attacked. 

A  century  has  now  passed  since  the  United  Empire  Loyalist  settlement  of  Upper  Canada  took 
place,  and  three-quarters  of  a  century  since  the  conclusion  of  the  War  of  1812.  In  those  two  events 
and  in  the  intervening  period  there  were  many  who  had  a  prominent  part  in  public  affairs,  and 
whose  names  appear  in  history,  who  have  left  descendants.  It  is  very  rarely  that  a  man,  gent'.e  or 
simple,  can  name  his  great  grandfather,  except  in  cases  where  some  care  has  been  taken  to  preserve 
family  recortls.  Each  new  generation  that  arises  means  one  more  past  generation  forgotten.  There 
are  already  numerous  descendants  of  early  settlers  in  this  Province  who  cannot  show  their  descent, 
and  in  another  quarter  of  a  century  there  will  be  comparatively  few  who  can  do  so,  unless  some  effort 
is  made  to  preserve  family  histories.  At  the  request  of  a  number  of  persons  interested,  1  have 
undertaken  the  task  of  doing  what  I  may  be  able  to  do  towards  this  work. 

It  has  not  been  my  intention  to  include  in  this  work  families  only  of  superior  social  st.inding. 
The  list  of  those  who  appear  in  it  might  seem  to  indicate  some  such  selection,  but  that  is  simply 
because  the  history  of  some  families  has  been  less  difficult  to  obtain  than  that  of  others  And 
though  the  purpose  of  the  work  has  reference  to  the  earlier  settlers,  I  have  not  thought  it  inconsistent 
to  include  immigrants  of  more  recent  arrival. 

Most  genealogical  works  follow  the  plan  of  selecting  an  individual  and  tracing  his  ancestry  ;  this 
work  is  just  the  reverse,  as  it  is  the  naming  of  an  ancestor  and  tracing,  as  far  as  practicable,  all  his 
descendants.  I  hav'e  therefore  omitted  none  whose  names  I  could  learn,  except  in  the  case  of  children 
of  persons  who  have  left  Ontario  and  gone  to  live  elsewhere.  I  have  even  been  p.irticular  to  include 
those  whose  career  is  summed  up  in  the  curt  but  pathetic  <l.  inf.  Some  of  those  to  whom  I  am 
indebted  for  assistance  in  obtaining  particulars  of  their  families  have  not  ipiite  uiulerstnod  what 
was  desired  in  this  respect. 

I  am  fully  conscious  that  the  work  is  likely  to  contain  imperfections  I  can  only  say  that  I  have 
taken  great  pains  to  secure  accuracy,  and  if  any  errors  should  be  discovered,  I  will  take  it  as  a  great 
fp.voar  if  they  are  brought  to  my  notice  so  that  corrections  may  be  made. 

The  genealof'ies  ha%'e  been  constructed  from  data  supplied  by  family  records,  registered  wills 
and  deeds,  histories  and  various  other  sources  of  information,  and  in  every  case  I  have  sought  the 
assistance  of  one  or  more  members  of  the  family  concerned,  which  I  may  say  here,  has  in  nearly 
every  case  been  readily  and  courteously  rendered. 


Hrmorial  JJearinos. 

A  LITTLE  explanation  may  be  desirable  as  to  the  nietliods  adopted  in  showing 
r\  armorial  bearinf,'s  in  this  work,  in  cases  in  which  the  evidence  of  the 
correctness  of  those  nsed  is  such  as  to  leave  no  room  for  doubt,  the  arms  are 
described  in  ordinary  type.  Where  such  positive  evidence  is  not  at  hand,  inasmuch 
as  it  often  happens  from  various  causes  that  families  bear  arms  different  from  those 
to  which  they  arc  entitled,  it  has  been  thought  better  for  the  descriptions  to  be 
printed  in  italics ;  it  must  l)c  quite  understood,  however,  that  where  this  occurs  it 
does  not  suggest  any  doubt  of  the  right  of  the  family  concerned  to  bear  arms,  but 
simply  indicates  the  absence  of  positive  and  authentic  information  as  (o  the  correct- 
ness of  those  actually  used.  Nor  does  the  omission  of  arms  in  any  case  imply  the 
ab..ence  of  a  right  to  bear  them,  but  only  shows  that  the  author  has  not  succeeded 
in  obtaining  the  necessary  particulars.

SOMK  time  after  the  breaking  up  of  the  Scottish  Clans,  winch 
followed  the  defeat  of  the    Stuarts    in     1745,    a    considerable 
number     of    tlu;     Macdonells    of    (ilenj^arry    eniif^'raad    to 
America    under    the    leadersliip    of    Macdonells   of    Scotu?,    Leek, 
Aberchalder  and   Collachi(>,   Cadets  of   Clengarry,    and   s^-ttled  on 
the  Mohawk    River   in    the    central    part    of   the  then   Province    of 
New  York.     On  the  breaking  out  of  the  Revolutionary  War  all  the 
men  of  the  Clan  in  America  took  up  arms  in  defence  of  the  Crown, 
in  such  numbers  as  to  form,  in  great  part,  the   ist  Battalion  of  the 
King's  Royal  Regiment  of  New  York,  of  which  Sir  John  Johnson  was 
Colonel,  while  others  entered  the  Royal   Highland  ]"!migrant  Regi- 
ment (afterwards  known  as  the  84th),  and  Hutler's  l^ang(>rs.      The 
Macdonells   thus   rendered  valuable    services  throughout   the  war, 
during  which  they    sufifered   great   cruelties    and  indignities  at  the 
hands  of  the  Revolutionary  Party,  from  which  no  rank,  sex  or  age 
was  exempt,  and  also  lost  all  their  properties.*      On  the  conclusion 
of  the  war  they  settled  in  what   is    now  the  extreme  eastern  part 
of  Ontario,  and    part  of  which    bears    their    name,  the  County  of 
Glengarry,  then  an  unl)roken  wilderness  of  forest.     Here  they  were 
subseciuently  joined  by  the  Macdonells  of  (ireenfield  and  many  of 
their  fellow  clansmen  and  other  Highlanders,  notably  (in  1804)  the 
disbanded  soldiers  of  the  (ilengarry  Fencible  Regiment,  which  served 
(under  Col.  Alexander-Ranaldson  Mac.'onell.  Chief  of  Glengarry)  in 
the  Irish   Rebellion  of  1798,   who   were   brought  to  Canada  by  the 
celebrated    priest,    soldier    and    statesman,     the     Rev.     Alexander 
Macdonell,  Chaplain  (Roman  Catholic)  to  the  Regiment. f

BRANT,  Til.  le.  %. 


IN  the  year  1710  five   Indian   Chiefs  or  Sachems  were   taken  to 
England,  where  they  attracted  much  attention,  and  were  pre- 
sented to  Queen  Anne.      Three  of  these  were  Mohawks,  one  of 
whom  was  chief  of  the  Canajoharie  clan  or  division  of  that  tribe,  to 
whic'-  the  famous  Brant  belonged. 

One  of  these  chiefs,  said  to  be  the  last  mentioned,  was  the 
father  of 

Nickus  Brant  or  Aroghyadagha,  also  known  by  the  name  of 
Tehowaghwengaraghkwin,  a  sachem  of  the  Wolf  (Okwaho)  family 
or  totem.  Two  of  the  children  of  this  chief  attained  considerable 
celebrity,  viz.  : 

Joseph,  of  whom  below. 

Mary,  or  Molly,  as  she  has  usually  been  called  ^d.  1805),  who 
became  the  second  wife  of   Sir  William  Johnson,  Baronet  (d.  1774), 
who  was  a  gentleman  of  large  estates  in  the  then  Province  of  New 
York  (which  were  confiscated  by  the  American  Government,  and  his 
son.  Sir  John  Johnson,   dispossessed,   in   the    Revolutionary  War) 
He  exercised  great  influence  among  the  Indians,  and  was  a  success- 
ful military  leader,  being  consequently  a  prominent  figure  in  the  con- 
test   for    supremacy    between    the    English    and    French    in    North 
America.     Molly  is  described  by  an  authoress  to  whom  she  was  well 
known,  as  possessing  "an  uncommonly  agreeable  person  and  good 
understanding."     Of  this  marriage  there  was  issue  (besides  probably 
others),   Wilh.-im,  d.  unm.,  and  daughters  married  as  follows :     to 
Capt.  Farle) ,  Goth  Regt.  ,  to  Lieut.   Lemoine,   24th  Regt. ;    to  John 
Ferguson  of  the  Indian  Department;    to  Capt.  Earle,  naval  officer- 
and  to  Robert  Kerr,  M.I).,  of  Niagara,  said  to  be  a  relative  of  the 
Duke  of  Roxburgh,  who  had  issue,  three  sons,  all  officers  in  the  war 
of  1812,  viz. : 

I.— William-Johnson  (Kerr)  b.  1787,  m.  Elizabeth,  daughter  of 
Joseph  Brant,  named  below.  He  was  Captain  in  the  war 
of  1812;  commanded  the  Indians  at  the  Beaver  Dams, 
when  a  small  force  under  Fitzgibbon  secured  the  surrender 



f  f 


of  a  considerable  body  of  Americans;*    was  subsequently 

Lieut. -Col. ;  orj^anized  a  body  of  Indians  to  serve  in  1837-8; 

and  was  sometime  a  member  of  the  Lefjislative  Assembly. 
2. — Walter  (Kerr),  was  wounded  and  taken  prisoner  in  1812,  but 

escaped,  and  subsecjuently  died  of  his  wounds. 
3. — Robert  (Kerr). 
And  two  daus.,  one  m.  to  Colonel  Clarke,  of  Niagara  Falls,  and 

the  other  to Gillespie,  of  Montreal. 

(Capt).  Joseph  Brant  or  Thayendinegea,  b.  1742,  d.  Nov.  1807, 
a  Chief  of  the  Six  Nations  and  a  Captain  in  the  army  ;    was  dis- 
tinguished as  a  brave  and  skilful  warrior  and  as  a  statesman  of  great 
natuT-al  ability.     At  thirteen  years  of  age  he  was  present  at  the  battle 
of    Lake  George,  when  the  English,  under   Sir  William   Johnson, 
defeated  the  French.      In  1764  he  was  engaged  in  a  war  against  the 
great  Chief  Pontiac,  who  had  raised  a  strong  confederacy  of  Indian 
tribes  to  endeavour  to  dispossess  the  English  of  territories  acquired 
by  them  from  the  French.     Soon  after  this  the  American  Revolution- 
ary War  broke  out,  in  which  Capt.  Brant  was  a  faithful  and  energetic 
adherent  of  tMe  Crown,  rendering,  time  and  again,  important  services, 
and  being  also  noted  for  his  constant  efforts  to  restrain  his  followers 
and  to  prevent  the  excesses  which  usually  occurred  in  Indian  warfare. 
It  is  true  that  this  latter  phase  of  his  character  has  been  denied  by 
some  writers,  apparently  on  the  authority  of  Campbell's  "Gertrude 
of  Wyoming,"  but  it  is  now  generally  admitted,  and  Campbell  him- 
self declared,  that  the   Brant  pictured   by  him  was  a    character  of 
fiction  to  whom  the  name  was  unjustly  applied.      Some  historians 
have   indeed   declared  the    story  of    the   so-called    "Massacre"   of 
Wyoming  to  be  almost  wholly  un^^rue,  or  at  least  grossly  misstated  ; 
and  at  the  most  what  did  take  place  was  a  reprisal,  according  to  the 
manner  of  warfare  of  the  place  and  time,   for  atrocities  committed 
upon  the  Royalists  by  the  Revolutionary  party.     After  the  American 
States  became  independent,   Capt.   Brant,  with  the  greater  part  of 
the  Mohawks,  and  a  number  of  the  other   five   tribes,   withdrew  to 
Canada,  where  grants  of  land  were  made  to  the  Six  Nations  on  the 
Bay  of  CJuinte,  and   subsequently   on   the  Grand  River,  on  both  of 
which  their  descendants  still   continue.      Capt.  Brant  himself  was 

*  Lieut.  Fitzgibbon  s  command  consibted  of  i6  horse,  and  46  foot,  with  the  Indians,  variously 
slated  at  from  .130  to  450,  the  former  figure  being  given  by   Kerr,  and  therefore  likely  to  be  correct 
'rhe  Americans,  after  having  lost  a  number  killed  and  wounded,  surrendered  544,  which  included  .So 
cavalry,  with  two  guns 


granted  an  estate  of  considerable  extent  at   Burlington,   where  he 
built  a  house  long  known  as  Brant   House,  and  lived  with  his  family 
in   the   European    manner,   devoting   the    remainder   of   his    life    to 
furthenng  the  welfare  of  his  people,  and  their  advance  in  civilization 
A  wooden  church,  erected  about    1785   through   his  efforts,   is  still 
standing  near  Brantford,  in  which   city*  a  handsome  bronze  statue 
has  been  erected  to  his  memory.      He  m.   istly,   Margaret,  dau   ot

t  Known  by  both  surnames,  and  so  styled  in  the  register  of  this  marriage.  This  genealoev  con- 
Uins  several  examples  of  surnames  in  the  course  of  adoption.  Since  settling  in  Canada  the  Six 
Nations  have  generally  acquired  surnames,  having  previously  seldom  used  any  'rhe  name  Johnson 
;s  of  frequent  occurrence  and  has  perhaps  been  adopted  out  of  respect  for  Sir  William  Johnson 
1  he  most  common  method  of  acquiring  surnames  by  Indians  at  the  present  time  is  to  take  as  such  the 
name  (Indian)  of  the  hrst  one  who  becomes  prominent,  or  who  adopts  a  settled  mode  of  life

JAKVIS,  'm,TE,%. 

THIS  family  is  a  l)ranch  of  a  numerous  family  of  New  Enfj;land, 
who  elaimed  deseent  from  an  Hnf;lish  family  of  Co.  Stafford, 
named  ancienth*  Gervaise  (or  (iervasius)  and  more  recently 
Jervis  or  Jarvis,  with  nui  lerous  variations  of  the  name.  The  Ameri- 
can Jarvises  were  supposed  to  be  of  the  same  family  as  the  famous 
Admiral  Jervis,  created  Earl  of  St.  Vincent,  a  relationship  asserted 
by  that  nobleman  himself;  but  the  arms  of  the  American  family  are 
quite  different  from  those  of  Lord  St.   Vincent. 

Amonj^  the  first  settlers  at  Huntin^'don,  Long  Island,  Con- 
necticut (formerly  called  the  Island  of  Nassau),  about  1658,  were 
five  of  the  name  ;  one  of  these  was  the  father  of

Of  The  Oaks,  Queen's  Park,  Toronto. 

William  Beatty,  of  Moneymore,  Co.  London- 
derry, was  a  Captain  in  the  Garrison  of  Derry  in 
the  famous  siege  of  i68g,  in  which  he  "  ever  behaved 
himself  with  great  integrity  and  valour,"  taking  part 
in  all  important  engagements,  and  also  going  out 
almost  daily  with  small  parties  to  harass  the  besiegers, 
until  about  a  month  before  the  end  of  the  siege, 
having  been  attacked  with  a  severe  illness,  he  with- 
drew, under  protection,  to  his  home.  He  m.  subse- 
quently, and  had  twelve  sons,  among  them 

James,  a  merchant  in  Newry,  living  there  in 
1763,  who  had,  with  others  (one  of  whom  was  Archdeacon  of  May- 
down,  Co.  Longford)  a  son

occurrence,  the  particulars  of  the  family  history  during  the  latter 
part  of  the  i8th  century  were  lost.  It  has,  however,  always  been 
believed  by  the  family  that  George  Cosby  was  the  eldest  male  repre- 
sentative of  Gov.  William  Cosby,*  and  it  may  therefore  be  presumed 
that  he  was  the  son  of  Capt.  William  Cosby.  It  is  said  that  at

The  nature  of  this  service  may  he  illustrated  by  an  incident  which  occurred  after  the  battle 
of  Stoney  Creek,  when  Capt.  Merritt,  while  on  scouting  duty,  found  himself  in  the  enemy's  lines 
and  was  challenged  by  a  sentry  guarding  ■  Old  Gage's"  house,  to  whom  he  replied  by  asking  •■  Who 
placed  you  here  ?  "  and  rode  up  to  him  ;  the  sentry  answered  '  My  Captain,  who  has  just  gone  into 
the  house  with  a  party  of  men";  Merritt  then  asked  other  questions,  which  not  only  gave  him 
mformation  as  to  the  enemy,  but  also  led  the  sentry  to  suppose  him  to  be  an  officer  of  his  own 
arniy,  a  ruse  which  his  blue  dragoon  uniform  made  possible.  He  then,  having  dis.armed  the  sentry 
made  him  and  another  man  prisoners,  and  carried  them  off,  notwithstanding  the  party  of  the  enemy' 
in  the  house.  r      j  j

Note. — The  heraldic  insignia  of  the  eight  clans  of  the  Six  Nations,  as 
anciently  used  by  them,  are  displayed  on  sixteen  banners  now  being  made  for 
the  decoration  of  the  Council  House  umler  the  direction  of  the  writer,  after 
careful  enquiry  of  the  tribesmen,  which  may  be  described  thus:  For  war,  eight 
banners  per  pale  sa.  and  gu. ;  and  for  peace,  eight  bani,3rs,  or,  a  pale  gu.  (couleur 
de  rose)  ;  charged  respectively  with  the  several  totems  of  each  clan,  namely, 
Anowara,  a  turtle;  Okwaho,  a  wolf;  Ohkwari,  a  bear;  Oskenonton,  a  deer  ; 
Tsianito,  a  beaver  ;  Karhakonha,  a  hawk;  Thekahon,  a  heron  ;  Tawistawis,  a 
snipe.  As  the  attitudes  of  totems  are  not  determined,  but  are  in  fact  optional, 
those  on  the  war  banners  are  shown  in  attitudes  denoting  vigorous  action,  as 
rampant,  volant,  etc.,  and  those  on  the  peace  banners  -is  passant,  close  and  the 
like.  Each  one  of  the  Six  Nations  is  regarded  as  consisting  of  the  same  eight 
clans,  the  members  of  which,  although  of  different  tribes,  are  accounted  as 
blood  relations  and  cannot  intermarry  ;  thus,  for  example,  an  Okwaho  Mohawk 
may  not  marry  an  Okwaho  Cayuga,  but  may  marry  a  Mohawk  of  any  other

support  the  statement,  but  they  ha\e  always  believed  it  to  be  the  fact,  and 
there  are  members  still  living  who  knew  the  last  Macnab,  and  recollect  his

The  arms  as  shewn  in  lliis  work  are  those  ref,'istered  in  1765,  and  generally 
known,  lint  these  arms  are  of  comparatively  late  date.  The  writer  has  been 
shewn  a  seal  which  was  broufjiht  to  Canada  in  1758,  and  has  been  handed 
down  from  a  Mr.  Macnab,  a  near  relative  of  a  former  Laird  of  Macnab  and 
member  of  his  household,  shewinj^  arms :  Three  boar's  heads  erased,  and  in

Mr.  Archer  Martin,  who  compiled  an  exhaustive  pedigree  of  this  family

From  Simcoe's  Journal  it  would  appear  that  Major-Gen.  Shaw  served 
as  an  officer  in  the  Queen's  Rangers  for  some  time  prior  to  the  date  of  his 
first  commission  stated  in  the  text,  no  doubt  under  a  local  commission.  Many 
officers  who  served  in  the  American  Rev.  War,  and  in  iSi 2,  held  local  com- 
missions only,  and  no  doubt  also  many  were  appointed  as  officers  of  the  regular 
army  by  the  officer  having  the  local  conunand,  whose  appointments  were  not 
confirmed  until  long  after,  and  sometimes  not  at  all,  where  the  necessity  of 
confirmation  had  ceased  to  exist,  or  where  the  corps  to  which  such  officers 
were  attached,  were  reduced. 

The  Queen's  Rangers,  in  which  George  Shaw  held  his  commission, 
was  not  the  famous  Regt.  of  that  name,  but  a  corps  raised  after  the  reduction 
of  that  Regt. 

Charlotte-Stuart  Shaw  was  m.  27th  June  1832,  to  Rev.  Ephraim  Evans,
